Tweet with Symbols and Special Characters: Twitter Symbols App

Loads of Twitter services and platforms have been developed in recent times that allow users to make their tweets integrated with multimedia contents or other stuff. Those who are avid users of Twitter know that every character we enter on Twitter counts a lot because Twitter allow us to use only 140 characters.

Though there are some services that allow users to enter considerably longer tweets but they have their own drawbacks, like most of them include a link to your tweet. So keeping these restrictions in view, I guess using characters and special symbols is a very good option. So let’s have a look at it:

Twitter Symbols Web App Features

Twitter Symbols

The apps functioning is pretty simple, it enables you to enter characters and symbols in your tweets via their integrated platform. The app enables you to enter varying kind of symbols like stars, zodiac symbols, mathematics symbols and chess characters. Each of the added symbols is counted as a single character, you just need to click on the symbol and it will be automatically entered in your tweet.

What I like the most about this app is that no links are incorporated in the tweets no matter how many characters you enter. Plus the app also has a considerably good symbol and characters archive and you can decorate your tweets in many ways using it. Twitter Symbols app is a must use for Twitter freaks and I can bet that you are going to like it.
